Metalhead (623) - Lake Zurich, Illinois, USA - JUL 18, 2011
This is a beer that needs to sit for a few after pouring to kill the sharp bitterness. Pours like hazy apricot juice. Aroma was not really distinctive unless you stick your nose in the glass. Tastes of burnt caramel ,bread crust and resiny hops. Sticky finish. I got ZERO citrus out of this which is a big no no in my book. Pretty good lacing. You won’t see one in my fridge anytime soon.

This is a nice IPA. Pours a light mahogany, somewhat amber color with off white head and very little lacing. Lemon, straw, citrus notes on the head. Pine, resin, hints of caramel, mild bitterness make for a really nice beer. It’s actually less hoppy than I expected, making this IPA unlike other hopped up ales.

The aroma is hoppy with much less citrus than one might expect. The beer has a smooth start and an acidic finish in the mouth. The taste is similar with some good balance starting out finished by what I find excessive bitters.

bigben873 (125) - Virginia, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Light hop aroma, dark amber, somewhere between a regular IPA and an imperial. Smooth and malty like an imperial but a little bitter and not as full bodied, like a regular IPA. -March madness 2014

Pours a hazy orange with a smallish head. Nice aromas of caramel and orange. It has a nice balance, but the finish is a bit off.

Wittales (564) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 16, 2014
Appearance was cloudy deep orangish gold with diminishing off white 1 finger head, spotty lacing. Aromas are floral citrus and pine with strong sweet malts, no alcohol. Taste are sweet caramal upfront gives way to pine, grapefruit, lemon, touch of tangerine. Palate was soft creamy smooth CO2 with meduim body, lasting piney sweet citrusy finish. A malty citrus piney solid IPA.

Tonkun (609) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 16, 2013
Tap. Light copper pour with a thin white head. Pine, floral, bread, citrus. Easy carbonation in a medium body. Bitter finish but well balanced. Very straight forward good IPA

ronaldtheriot (1100) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - SEP 5, 2013
Ipswich I.P.A. has a medium, off-white head, a hazy, orange-gold appearance, some bubble streams, and thin lacing left behind on the glass. The aroma is of sweet, white bread and citrusy hops. Taste is of citrus, toffee, caramel, sweet, white bread, and a hearty, but at the same time, subdued bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and slick, and Ipswich I.P.A. finishes mostly dry, refreshing, relatively easy drinking, and bitter. No alcohol shows itself with this beer. Overall, this is most excellent. RJT

SamP01 (515) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Pours a dark cloudy orange amber with a medium off white head. Aroma and taste is citrus pine hops upfront becomes more earthy as it warms up with some mild citrus fruity notes, caramel malt and yeast. Palate is a medium body, carbonation is fine. Finishes with a good caramel malt and yeast background followed by some good earthy hops bitterness for balance. Seems slightly heavy on the malt but still good.

AbbeyRoade (259) - Missouri, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Definitely a different IPA..not the usual straight hop drink I’m used to. This has a bit of maltyness to it and is quite dry to finish as well. Roasted notes with a rather weak aroma. Not a bad beer...slightly spicy and bitter to finish.
